Sports Bikini That Stays Put! Made locally. Made responsibly.
Sports Swimwear that stays put! Made locally. Made responsibly.
Thanks to fashion designer Christy Woodrow, nip slips (or worse) while enjoying water sports are now a thing of the past.
Woodrow, an avid surfer and water-lover, recently debuted her swimwear line, OT Surf to the public. According to Woodrow, the line is designed specifically to stay put, making embarrassing slip ups virtually impossible.
“I designed this swimwear for all of the ladies who worry about heading out into the waves and emerging sans top,” said Woodrow, co-founder of OT Surf. “Personally, I’ve lost my top in the water and I’ve had to hike up my bottoms after a wave, and decided it was time to come up with a solution for active women.”
OT Surf’s first two products available to the public include a signature sports bikini and 100% recycled t-shirt with a cool surfer silhouette design.
The Story Behind OT Surf
It all started with our passion for surfing, traveling and the environment. We began to get frustrated with the options, functionality and quality of the clothing and sports swimwear on the market, starting with women’s bikinis.
We decided it was time to design a functional bikini that stays put in the toughest conditions that is manufactured in the USA with high-quality materials.
Just to show you how much of a need there is for a functional sports bikini, we have added an excerpt from the August 2011 issue of Transworld Surf magazine where Chris Cote interviewed 9 different female pro surfers who travel all over the world in search of good waves.
“Whenever girls in bikinis duckdive, the bottoms come down; it always happens.”
Christy got tired of pulling her bikini bottoms back up and Scott grew tired of her always complaining about it. So they came up with a solution that is both functional and sexy.
Don’t know if the topic is still actual. But if so where can I get that amazing Bikini?
It does look like a nice design. Good luck with the venture.
That’s so cool how you guys make bikinis for surfing! 🙂
No offence but I much prefer swimwear that doesn’t stay put. You know the kind? The type that has your balls or boobs suddenly jutting out at right angles?
Seriously though. Looks great. Well done you guys!
I do know the kind. 😉 lol. It can be fun sometimes if you are into that sort of thing. ha! Thanks, Will!
Good luck with your funding. Looks like a very nice suit.
Good luck with everything!
I shared the post on the FB page of the Canadian Surf Film Festival for you 🙂
Thanks Cailin we really appreciate the support. We won’t make it unless we get out there.
Yeah! this is really the right time to promote this sports bikinis. I like your idea guys. This is really a perfect swimwear to those women who loves swimming. Is there also a swimwear for men?
Thanks! We will be looking into the possibility of mens suits too, but if we don’t get this one off the ground first…
You are awesome, Diana. We so appreciate all of your help!
This sounds like a great idea, good luck with it 🙂
Looks great for water-skiing and wakeboarding too! I will pass this along to my friends!
Thanks we appreciate that 🙂
Great idea! Good luck with it.
YAY! Congrats on getting this launched, you two! Love the colors, and I think the design is really cool. Fingers crossed that you make your Kickstarter goal! 😀
Thanks for the feedback and for backing us! You are awesome.
One more Target market for you- active moms!!! I am very active (kayak, diving, boating,ect). We take our 2yr old with us every where we can. Toddlers always seem to grab into bikinis when learning to swim or playing in water! It will be nice to have a bikini that will stay put while running around with my son!!!
It’s so funny you mention that because my friend’s sister just said the same thing and it’s something I had not thought about. Thanks for the comment and suggestion!
Brilliant idea. I also give you props for wanting to manufacture locally. It’s not easy but I know you guys are saving the world. I wish you all the best!
Thanks, Alexa! It definitely isn’t easy. Sometimes I wish I didn’t care and could just take the easy route. lol 🙂
Ooh amazing! Would love to try out one of these as soon as I get a chance to enjoy some warm weather! Hahaha
Thanks! Don’t wait too long, Candice. We have to reach our pre-sale goal by April 2 or we won’t be able to make these bikinis. 🙂
Just had this problem in a massive waterfall in Vietnam–bottoms kept falling down! Best of luck with this campaign, definitely a niche in the market that needs to be filled!
Sorry to hear that 🙁 Why not invest in some protection for next time? 🙂
Love the philosophy and the functionality AND it looks great!
Awesome! Congrats guys! I’m about to send this over to my sister who I think may become one of your customers 🙂 I’ve been working on starting a physical enterprise myself and damn, this shit is a lot of work. But, so worth it. Congrats again!
It IS a lot of work! Sometimes I wonder what we have gotten ourselves into, but we are passionate about it, so it’s definitely worth it. Thanks for sharing and we wish you the best of luck on your new endevour!
Seriously awesome!! You guys did a great job with this bikini! It so cute and you look great!
Thank you! We really appreciate it. Just make sure you pre-order on Kickstarter by April 2, 2012 if you want to get one!
This is fantastic! It looks absolutely awesome. Love the philosophy behind it and the idea!
Thanks so much, Akila!
Can’t wait to try it!
I can’t wait to try it when the water is actually warm! haha
Awesome! Good luck!
Thanks, Ali. Thanks for the shares too!
Congratulations on the launch! I know you’ve worked really hard to get this going. Looks like a great product and love the philosophy behind it!
We are really happy with how the suit turned out and we wouldn’t have done production any other way. Thanks!
Great idea — the bikini looks great and sounds perfect for active women who love the water. Good luck getting your Kickstarter funding!
Thank you, Cathy!
This is awesome guys! Love it =)
